We had a blast at The Harmony Sweepstakes on Saturday. It's always a fun event, but the talent level of these groups was really impressive. We're tickled to have made the top three with Ro Sham Bo and the T Sisters, both excellent groups with lots of time under their belts. Special thanks to Caia and Wil for doing original arrangements which really pleased the audience, and to friends in the audience for cheering us on.
Prime Time is a jazz-centered a cappella group from the California Bay Area which specializes in heartfelt singing, exquisite musicianship, and an approachable, honest performance style.
Separately, the singers have decades of experience spanning multiple styles and cultures. Together, we have one goal - to let the music shine in and through us, as we reach out to touch, inspire, and entertain YOU, our listeners.
Prime Time is revved up for our first Harmony Sweepstakes competition this weekend in San Francisco. We had a terrific coaching session with Daniel Hughes (of Choral Project fame) and are very excited to be singing not one, but two original arrangements.
Its an honor to be even chosen to compete, and we are thrilled to be among these fine groups competing. Click on the flyer photo for more info. See you there!
We had a fabulous time singing our entire repertoire for an assembled group of friends, fans, and wine afficianados on Sunday Dec 9. Highlights included having Wil's friends come down from Pleasanton, Caia's from San Francisco, and John's longtime friend Kristin Hasty all the way up from So. Cal, plus lots of the guys barbershop friends.
A huge thanks to our sound man - big Max Lanfranconi, and to Jennifer and the Savvy staff for hosting.
A wonderful evening. We plan to do this much more regularly. Stay tuned for future dates.
We had a terrific time singing at the ever so secret and exclusive holiday dinner of alumni of Yale University's most infamous singing group - The Society of Orpheus and Bacchus on Wed Dec 5th. The gathering included Yale alums and their SO's from the classes of '57 through 2010! It was so much fun singing for some of the folks who got John started in a cappella. The drinks were good too.
This officially kicks off our holiday season, with an upcoming show at the Savvy Cellar in Mountain View on the evening of the 9th, Milpitas High School on the 12th and carolling (likely on Santana Row) on Sept 19th.
